Behavioural Consulting &  Parenting Strategies

Helping Children deal with big feelings

When working with parents, we set up an initial behavioural consultation to discuss any concerns with our counsellors or behavioural programmers. Next, we meet with the parent and our support team together. We discuss goals and strategies to help the child move forward. 

These can include play therapy, therapy animals and taking them out in the community. Our team of behavioural programmers and counsellors in Langley will also create a wrap around approach by working with parents, teachers, school counsellors to create the right IEP goals.

Behavioural Consultation Wheel

Behavioural Intervention

This type of behavioural modification therapy uses reinforcement to intervene in behaviours that could negatively affect a child. 

One of the biggest challenges parents face is managing the difficult or defiant behaviour. These techniques will provide a roadmap on how to manage and regulate children’s behaviours. 

Behaviour interventionists work directly with parents to implement therapy programs based on their children. Skills learned during behaviour intervention include:

  • Communication, play and social skills
  • Functional life skills and daily living skills
  • Sensory systems and self-regulation
  • Gross and fine motor skills

    The ABC’s of Behaviour Management at Home 

     To understand problematic behaviour, consider what came before it as well as after. 

    Antecedents: Preceding factors that make a behaviour more or less likely to occur. Learning and anticipating triggers is an extremely helpful tool in preventing misbehaviour. 

    Behaviours: The specific actions you are trying to encourage or discourage. 

    Consequences: The results that naturally or logically follow a behaviour. Consequences — positive or negative — affect the likelihood of a behaviour recurring.

     

    If you are having difficulties with behaviours at home, give us a call to discuss your child’s needs. We would be happy to set an Initial Consult meeting. Crossroads Collective can also help you find funding through local agencies should you need to access these resources.
